Ooh look! A new post.
A beautiful lesson in the human species and how society works.
I was scrolling through the latest list of top-level domain extensions, just
to see what's new, when I was struck by the highest and lowest prices to buy
one. These are the .science, etc that can now be bought and used instead of
.com, etc. Prices range from the single example of extensions priced at $9-95,
to the one at the opposite end of the scale, which is a staggering $4014-95. By
comparison, a .com extension costs $21-50.
The most expensive extension? Predictably:
While the cheapest of all domains is .work.
26 October: A new low in policing. The filthy pigs using the cover of
breath-testing to take details of euthanasia advocates. Little wonder they
attract pejoratives like "pigs" and "filth".
This is as disgraceful an abuse of police power that you will ever see.
A note for readers: I haven't posted anything new here for a while, and
don't intend to do so unless something truly startling happens.
There are two reasons:
1 - I am bloody busy!
2 - I constantly find that I'm saying the same things on the same subjects
over and over again, because nothing changes. One simple example: I was driving
around yesterday with one of our workers and he commented on a massive swimming
pool, which was clearly being delivered to someone's house. We agreed that the
cost would be somewhere around the $30,000 mark. Easy when your house value has
increased by $300,000 in the past year and will do so again in the next year.
I compare that side of Auckland with the other, where a family struggles
to scrape up $50.
Nothing changes, and I'm sick of repeating myself.
Posts may be rare, but I haven't given up.
